Here’s a nifty little Python script to help clean up models imported from FBX/STL/OBJ/whatever. It’s a simplified version of a custom add-on we use at my studio. Over the years I’ve found myself performing the same operations when prepping stock assets or CAD files for animation, so I wrote an add-on to do it for me.
This script automates the following tasks:
- Removes custom normals data
- Clears any parenting and applies transforms
- Sets autosmooth
- Recalculates normals
- Converts tris to quads
- Removes doubles
Enjoy! Feel free to contribute patches or open issues if you find any.
